BET Founder Bob Johnson Asks African-Americans To Give Donald Trump A Chance

"Trump is a business guy, and I think he's going to tilt towards finding [a] way to use fiscal policy...to move the economy forward," he told CNBC in an interview Monday. "Let's give him a shot.

Is BET founder Bob Johnson selling out black folks? Or does he see something in Donald Trump that minorities are missing?  It’s really hard to tell someone to give a person a chance that has willfully segregated America during the election process and now can’t control the white supremacists that he has unleashed against some of America’s most vulnerable people.

His Monochromatic staff and his narcissistic behaviour have turned so many people off, so trusting him is proving to be rather difficult.

See what Essence has reported.

BET founder Bob Johnson is telling black folks to give Donald Trump “the benefit of the doubt” after meeting with the President-Elect at his Trump National Gold Club in New Jersey this past weekend.

“Trump is a business guy, and I think he’s going to tilt towards finding [a] way to use fiscal policy…to move the economy forward,” he told CNBC in an interview Monday. “Let’s give him a shot. Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt; see if we can find common ground.”

“That’s what’s best for African-Americans,” Johnson added. To be clear, he supported Hillary Clinton’s bid for the presidency.

Paraphrasing Congressional Black Caucus member Rep. Bill Clay Sr, Johnson said, “Black Americans should have no permanent friends, and no permanent enemies, just permanent interests.”
